You are all going to LOVE this next party. SOOO clever and just plain CUTE. This POTTY TRAINING PARTY was submitted by Mindy Starr of Creative Juice. And that it is- creative! Oh my goodness- I just adore it. Do you have a toddler that you’re trying to potty train? Throw a potty training party to get them on board!

The invite that says, “peace out pampers”, the underwear cookies and cupcakes, the “I gotta go” juice cups, the toilet paper wreath, the “potty like a rock star” tags, the “pampers toss” game- it’s all absolutely darling & so perfectly thought out!

Potty Party Details from Mindy

“In my quest to potty train my daughter I came across a philosophy to “potty train in a day”. Part of the advice was to “throw them a potty party”…well when I see party I sort of tend to go over the top. So that’s what I did. I invited all of her friends over who were “in training” & their personal trainers- the moms – for a Potty party! I looked everywhere for potty charts & things to make it a CUTE special occasion for them. But alas, I found none. So I designed printables to go with this party.

Invitation:
“Its Official. I’m a big kid. Peace out Pampers! Put on your big kid pants and come potty like a rock star”

Theme: gray chevron, pink, blue, & underwear!!!!

Food & refreshment:
Cake and Underwear cookies
Cupcakes
Yogurt Parfait with coconut
Yogurt dipped pretzels with pink and blue icing drizzle
Popcorn cones
Pink lemonade & Blue Koolaid in “I gotta go” juice cups! {you are supposed to get them to drink a lot so they will have to go all day!}
Moms drank “ personal trainer” water bottles

Decorations:
“I’m a big kid” picture frames
Printable Potty Party Set
Toilet Paper Wreath {DIY on the blog soon}
Totsie rolls in toilet mug
Party hats
Spray painted $5 dessert stand

Activities:
Diaper Toss – Peace out papmers! – Kids threw their diapers in the trash never to be used again!
Potty pedi – Girls got a pedicure from your mommy while waiting on the potty!

Favors:
Each Kid got two favor bags – a #1 and a #2…. With corresponding treats to their respective actions… Yellow jelly beans and tootsie rolls!

    1. Ew on the #1 and #2 snacks.

    2. Do we really need to throw a party for every normal milestone in a kids life?

    Maybe I'm just a grump….

    I adore this idea. It's a great way to get them motivated.

    As for Anonymous, personally I love my child and yes his milestones may be common and normal. But for him and me they are major accomplishments. Why would I not celebrate my child every chance that I get if I have the means to do so.

    Yes it all is normal and you may not see it as something worth celebrating but I'm the type of mother who is incredibly proud of her son and believes that encouragement and praise are essential to their well being.

    This party isn't a celebration per say of the accomplish instead it is a source of encouragement to help little ones get interested in potty training so that they can accomplish it.

    I agree with Ana. This is too cute. Do you have children?

    Yes, it looks like this party is to get the child excited about potty training. She said she read a book saying that you should create a whole "potty training" day.

    I giggle at the #1 & #2 snacks- I love that she came up with the idea. Being a mom- we deal with that every day. It's totally normal. So to see it incorporated into a party is great! So funny. I love it.

    I do have children, grown ones, and I can tell you that when they were teenagers they would have been mortified to know I threw a party about their private bodily functions. To imply that those who don't celebrate every inhale and exhale of their children's lives are not proud or loving parents is insane. I think it's icky. That's all.

    Anonymous- This party was to help the child potty train. They weren't potty trained at the time of the party. She says at the bottom that the party worked and that her child was easily potty trained from the party! It wasn't for someone who had already been potty trained, and they weren't celebrating the milestone, like you keep referring to.

    If you think potty training is icky then so be it. But there's no way to potty train without talking about it all! So why is it so bad to have a labels saying the words that we have to use when potty training? to help the child understand, and to talk about it?

    Makes complete sense. I'm sure it's very effective! Have a big party all about potty training. Encouraging the toddler all the more! Very good idea! Everything is so cute!!
